Tutorial | Insta-Frames

What's the hardest part of moving?

a. Packing
b. Selling the old house
c. Saying goodbye to the old house
d. Redecorating the new house

When we moved out of our beloved first home where we welcomed two of our babies and made so many wonderful memories, everything on the list was hard. Prepping the house with three little ones is no small task, and saying goodbye to friends and neighbors was heart-breaking. I remember when we moved into that old house, I immediately felt those warm, fuzzy, at-home feelings. The new house, on the other hand, I didn't.

So, after we unpacked and settled in a bit, I started hanging up pictures. I know, right? Who hangs up pictures a few days after they've moved in? But surrounding myself with memories and faces of people that I love was the best thing I could have done to make our house more like a home.

I saved my Insta-frames for last and decided to hang them someplace where my family and I could admire them every day (and dinner guests can too! It's a perfect conversation starter!) Our family loves Yosemite, so the bulk of our photos at the moment are from our latest trip there, but we've had photos representing birthdays, holidays, and precious, every day moments that are totally Insta-worthy. ;) And with a few thrift store frames, a can of spray paint, twine, scotch tape, and 5x5 photos, this DIY Instagram display was a snap.

Most importantly, seeing these pictures from some of our favorite memories makes me feel happy, and a happy heart makes for a happy home.
